Funereal Duskywing

Funereal Duskywing - Erynnis funeralis

A fairly somber looking butterfly with an equally somber name. These are primarily found in the southwestern United States and Mexico. They are uncommon in Arkansas, but this one was nectaring on the slender mountain mint out behind the garden.
